Pecorino D’Abruzzo Collezione I.G.T. 2019 – Casalbordino
A small and delicately pale grape, Pecorino is happy from the higher altitudes to the foothills to the coast, and thrives in Abruzzo (though you'll also find it in the Marche, Umbria, Liguria and Tuscany). The grape itself has an exceptionally high sugar content and tends to reflect the terroir without reserve: it is both sensitive and expressive, not unlike Pinot Noir, so it is a grape for a patient and passionate winemaker. Another nice thing about Pecorino - especially for white wine lovers - is the complexity you can find in a relatively young and affordable bottle. In a similarly priced Pecorino, you will get much more than a two-dimensional crunchy Pinot Grigio or a slate Sauvignon Blanc you get character, evident terroir, a richer aromatic profile than what often accompanies "fresh" white wines - notes of fruits of forest, flowers, dried herbs, minerality, all balanced by an acid freshness and a slightly heavier mouthfeel (thank you, sugar)
